Re: Chronic sinus problems

In general, there are 3 things you should consider. First of all, saline irrigation with a SinusRinse bottle or neti pot is one of the best (and least expensive) treatments for chronic sinusitis.

Beyond that, the two most likely culprits behind chronic sinusitis are allergies and acid reflux (particularly LPR). It's fairly easy to get tested for allergies, but reflux can be a bit trickier as there's no easy test for reflux (but chronic post-nasal drip andbad breath are both common symptoms of LPR).

It may be with seeing a Gastroenterogist to get checked for reflux.
